A genre‑bending multimedia immersive audio‑visual album experience:
Unpredictability and improvisation are fixtures of Teper’s ethos. This process has developed an ever-flowing body of musically inspired collaborative contemporary art she calls Ronley Teper and The Lipliners, which combines the energies of so many creators all connecting through the process of sharing stories. An album spinning out an array of musical genres further evolved into a curated invitation/commission by Teper to 17 artists to create a piece from songs on the album. These were the catalyst to the works you’ll see in this exhibition. Stories begetting more stories in an array of mediums from animation, granite stone sculpture, performance stills, collage, a miniature, puppets and more appear in the exhibition.
This sonic pastiche will be visualized in the gallery space, opening March 3rd and running until March 20th, 2022. Visual artists include Nava Waxman, Walt Rickli, Kate Domina, Meghan Mcknight, Davide Di Saro, Katie Sawatsky, Carolyn Tripp, Denni Freedman, Yesim Tosuner, Virpi Kettu, Ben Baird, Shona Chornenki, Aly Livingston, Francisco Ribas-Bordas, Eileen Jerrett, 3D animated shorts and a multi sensory AR component & online VR immersive exhibition created by Saúl Lederman. VR online exhibit will launch here on March 3rd.
